Agent pointing to 2 Automation Engines

Discussion created by Jeremy_Clere_7804 on Mar 27, 2017
The team who are splitting the environment are asking if the following scenario is possible. If we have a Linux AE agent called BERGMAN which is in our current production environment and connects to our current production Automation Engine server, is it possible for jobs to be executed on BERGMAN from both the current production AE server and also the new AE server at the same time ?

Your agent BERGMAN cannot itself connect to two different Automation Engine servers at the same time.
But you can duplicate this agent to another folder and make it point to the new server.
They will have the same name and running the same job.
Be careful if you use jobs like file transfers, you might experience files missing or other error.

The only thing you need is to change the TCP/IP port, they cannot have the same port since they are running on the same machine.
